Yes, I am sure that there would be allot of BBF enthusiasts that would like to attend some sort of meeting over at the Pacific Coast Raceway or? I am sure that either Ford Powertrain Applications or Jim Green Performance might be interested in some sort of sponsorship. They have supported the all Ford shows before. I guess that the largest hurdle would be to advertise the event and to get the notoriously lazy :lol: Ford guys to attend in numbers! Allot of great ideas like this are killed due to "My car isn't done" etc. mentality that keeps attendance low. As I live In Spokane 300+miles away, it would be a trip as well as time off from work etc. but, I would still attend if this event where to be held.

How about something more central for those of us in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico, etc. Maybe Lake Tahoe? Reno? Salt Lake?

Sounds like a great time... I'd be more able to make one in this neck of the woods as I have family in Washington,therefore it wouldn't cost as much overall... Keep us posted if anything unfolds :P

Anybody who's reasonable local to Pacific Raceway? We could do a get together on a test and tune evening to get things rolling? Maybe do some Grudge racing against the GM's?

I'd be interested

I'd be interested in a West Coast GTG...

Reno/Vegas isn't bad. I wouldn't want to travel much further without centering a vacation around it.

If you guys are quick enough, maybe you can get a 2007 Fall BBF Bash, West Coast event together. Even if it's just a small gathering or meeting at a central track, you gotta start somewhere.

Then you can make it an annual Fall event :idea:

Don't forget Sacramento Raceway, and one of the best places around, Bakersfield, which could draw a bunch from Los Angeles Both are 1/4 mile tracks & have held Stupid Chevy events in the past.
